Midler on Radio’s Limited Sound:“But I have to say I’m not all that crazy about what’s going on in the pop world today.

Midler on Radio’s Limited Sound:“But I have to say I’m not all that crazy about what’s going on in the pop world today. I do try, and I’m very grateful for the ballads. People love to hear me sing them and I love to do them. But the radio only plays a certain sound and that’s too bad because my interest in music is so wide-ranging.” (1991, Chicago Sun Times) – Bette Midler

Here, however, we’re paying homage to some of our favourite gay icons (and allies) over the age of 70. (Not that you’d know they were.)

Cher

71-year-old Cher looks more glam, fit and fabulous than the majority of us ever have. More importantly, however, she’s one of the gay community’s most vocal advocates. As well as playing a lesbian in the film Silkwood, and cameoing in Will & Grace as the idol of gay character Jack McFarland, Cher supported her son Chaz Bono’s gender transition.

Midler on Music In General: “There’s nothing I really don’t like,” she said. “I see value in all kinds of popular music.

Midler on Music In General: “There’s nothing I really don’t like,” she said. “I see value in all kinds of popular music. That’s why it surprises me that people throw their music away. Here we are, Americans, and our pop music is a real treasure. Yet the record-buying public, as a whole, has cast the older music aside. And music has diminished. Modern pop has its moments. It’s not all great, but the swing stuff probably wasn’t all great, either. In hindsight, you tend to dig up the gems and focus on them.” (1991, Chicago Sun Times) – Bette Midler Read More

This article originally appeared in the June 1995 issue of OUT.

It’s the sort of daydream around which Jill Sobule might fashion one of her whimsical songs: she was hanging around her house in Los Angeles, in her pajamas, when a talent scout who had acquired her demo tape purely by accident called to invite her to perform at the Atlantic Records office the next day. Two days later, he called again—from an airplane— to tell Sobule she was as good as signed. All this as a result of “demos that my previous manager, who dropped me, said were ‘Terrible! You’re never gonna get anywhere!’” Read More
